Art from the book A Monster Calls written by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay.
It’s a children’s book about a boy (Conor) who starts having nightmares about a monster every night since his mother started her cancer treatment. One night when he wakes up, there is an actual monster right outside his window. The monster is a yew tree in the cemetery behind Conor’s house during day-time but the monster we see at night. I wont go into more detail about the story because it’s really worth reading. You might want to have some tissues and ice-cream ready though.
It was inspired by Siobhan Dowd, who passed away due to cancer and could not write this book herself
Casey Weldon will have a spectacular set of new paintings on display starting tonight, Thursday August 7th, 2014, at Roq La Rue in Seattle, Washington for his show entitled “Novel Relic.” Working to evoke nostalgia in his viewers, Casey’s work often takes the strange and mixes it with pop culture, resulting in a one of a kind style. These set of paintings see Casey particularly focusing in on technology and nature.
